    What to do with my 84 layer billet?

    That sounds like a good plan! I will probably go that route and I should have enough steel for one raindrop billet, & one ladder billet. Then maybe I'll try the W's on the next one. When I am ready to pattern the billets about how thick should I leave them before patterning?

I leave the detent sticking out about .016 to about .018, then I sand the point of the detent off...
